Whole food plant based, vegan, gluten free, oil free, plant based, refined sugar free and no highly processed ingredients. I love them any way you are able to make them. I particularly adore black beans, they’re so creamy, earthy, and completely delicious.
Traditionally, the Cuban Black Beans are created out of dried black beans and cooked on low heat for extended intervals. Using canned black-beans or precooked black-beans actually accelerate the process considerably.
Comparatively speaking, it’s quicker from this aspect! The final result is super yummy, we totally devoured them over chewy brown rice!
This Cuban Black Bean dish is a nod to the traditional Cuban Black Beans. It’s geared toward choosing the very best of this Cuban cuisine and mixing it little to suit the American palate.
Additionally, it will have a kick of heat, which will be my very own touch as I really like some warmth. It’s a flavorful twist!
It will take a few added minutes to mince the bell peppers, garlic, jalapeno and onions, but it’s wholly worth it.
Don’t use a food-processor to hasten this procedure. A food-processor will turn your vegetables to a soup since it induces them to release a lot of water. A nice dice will work nicely also.
